A one-off knitted sample knitted for A Stitch in Time volume 2, using fingering weight merino wool in a background of deep teal blue with decorative ruched stripes in grey, pale pink and deep rose; each stripe finished with a decorative knitted bow attached at centre front.
This sweater has all the classic hallmarks of a sweater from the 1940s with a shaped body designed to sit on the waist supported by a deep rib band measuring 3.5 inches (9cm), elbow-length, puffed sleeves, a neat round neck with back neck opening and to finish, a final flourish, knitted shoulder pads to support the dainty puffed sleeves.
An incredibly stylish sweater with classic 1940s features.
The sample was knitted in the second size to fit 34-36 inch (86-92cm) chest and has a finished chest dimension of 36 inches (92 cm) and a length to the underarm from the cast on edge of 13 inches (33.5 cm).
